Just bought a climbing Lady Boothy fuschia at 50% reduction today in local GC. It is in a 2ltr pot, very bushy, about 2'6" tall and cost £4.50. However, although it has planting info, it doesn't give advice on pruning or care.
I intend to plant it in the ground against a south facing fence, open to the sky, and it will get about 4/5 hours daily sunshine in the summer. I live in West Sussex and wonder if it will be hardy enouth to survive the winter or should I just keep it in it's pot for this winter and then dig it up in subsequent winters.
Should I prune it at the end of summer or leave it to die back? Also will it die back over winter and do I prune it in the spring?
Many thanks for your advice.
